our experience and expertise

Horten's EU law expertise is therefore an integrated part of all legal advice and sparring. We have wide international experience and advise Danish and foreign companies on issues  regulated by EU law or affecting other forms of international legal affairs.

We have many years' experience understanding, construing and communicating the special rules and rights laid down by the EU treaties. Our expertise embraces all questions and problems in relation to fundamental principles of EU law, including the free movement of goods, services and capital and freedom of establishment.

We also have experience with the application of the human rights laid down by e.g. the European Convention on Human Rights and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.
